    Just a quick question because I am never 100% sure.
    But do all fixed bail helmets have raised double bar type brass chinstrap buckles or are they pretty much mixed. Its just that when I look at this one i would think it had later steel buckles and straps attached as replacements am i correct or wrong.

    yes when they come from the factory but this one has had its chin strap replaced probably done in the field so they would have used what ever was available.

    Thanks Nick so thatís something else to look for when looking for an original untouched fixed bail.
    Cheers Rod
